    Hello, we are Isolde and Luis we are a family that lives 4 kilometers from Villa Cerro Castillo, we work in tourism specifically cabins.
    We also have a small farm and a greenhouse, we have only ten sheep and some chickens, our dog Cachupin is in charge of taking care of them. We live in a place surrounded by native trees such as lenga and we have a stream called "El cacique" special to cool off on hot days. We have the beautiful view of Cerro Castillo.
    We have electricity and drinking water, also with mobilization since we are next to the Carretera Austral, we live in a wonderful place!

  • Help


    We need help in maintaining the cabins, this refers to cleaning and ordering beds, this is done in the morning and you will always be accompanied.
    Some days the maintenance of the cabins is not carried out since there are no clients, so you can carry out any activity that we need in our farm (clean place where sheep sleep, fix gardens, among other similar).

    Necesitamos ayuda en realizar la mantencion de las cabañas, esto se refiere a realizar aseo y ordenar camas, esto se realiza por las mañanas y siempre estaras acompañado.
    Algunos dias no se realiza el mantenimiento de las cabañas ya que no hay clientes, por lo cual puedes realizar cualquier actividad que necesitemos en nuestra granja (limpiar lugar donde duermen las ovejas, arreglar jardines, entre otros similares)
